Omar Lattouf, was invited by the organizers of the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics conference to present the Company's minimally invasive mitral valve repair device, the TransCardiac MitraFlex.
In that study TCT's patented trans-apically placed "stitch and chord," commonly referred to by the proprietary name the TransCardiac MitraFlex, reduced the mitral regurgitant volume from an average of 67% to 39%; which was 18% better and statistically more significant than the Alfieri stitch technique could accomplish.
Lattouf concluded his presentation noting that: (1) TransCardiac's MitraFlex “stitch and chord” may be superior to bow-tie stitch alone; (2) Single or multiple mitral chordal trans-apical replacements are feasible; (3) The TransCardiac MitraFlex may be the surgical minimally invasive alternative to more complex trans septal routes for applying an Alfieri type repair.
